Rest, resting, rested

I am practicing rest. Not just napping or getting extra sleep but resting my mind and my spirit. Sometimes rest looks like more time with my nose in a book. I started this book about a month ago but this weekend I picked it up with renewed interest.

Last week I attended a screening of this movie and I cannot stop thinking about the pull of technology and the impact on our ability of to rest. I did a three week social media fast recently but I am seriously contemplating taking May to do a digital declutter. This is not just taking time off from technology. The declutter adds the extra steps of reflecting on the technology we us and of replacing online time with meaningful activities. For me, that would be reading, getting outside, and fiber play. Restful pursuits.

I should finish the book by the weekend and then I can put in the thinking/reflecting time. Stay tuned. I plan to be back next Tuesday with a monthly link up for our one word posts.
